Well this process will be very much like trying to arrange a swap between a Cubic Zirconia and the Hope Diamond. With diamonds value is determined by Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat.A good hay dealer will operate in much the same way when buying and selling his product because to stay in business he must know his product, the market and the customer if he wants to make a profit. Hay and diamonds may not compare in price but the concept is very similar: * Carat is the easiest to compare. A large comparable diamond when other factors are equal is more valuable. A large round or square bale is worth more then the smaller easier to handle common bale and if put together in a dense package will weigh more therefore buy it by the ton instead of by the bale for a more reliable and consist price. * Clarity can be used in hay by insisting that it has no impurities like peppergrass, straw, stinkweed or other trash in the interior, It must be free of mold and have a uniform attached leaf. * Cut is used because the coarser first cutting is less valuable then the leafy second or third cutting which has as your dietician would say has "more calories per ounce", or "is better for you". * Color of course is the botanical type you are buying. It might be alfalfa, timothy, red clover or prarie grass. Each has a use and each will have a different price tag. A Sear's diamond is still a diamond but a DeBoers Diamond purchased from a major house is a Diamond Forever. Buying hay is the same way. Wow... It costs between $3.25 and $4.00 a bale for good 10% protein horse hay in square bales.
